The ability to effectively execute or "get things done" is critical for business leaders and an overriding factor in determining a company's long-term success.

Management expert Prof. Jeffrey Pfeffer of Stanford University will lead IESE's Short Focused Program on this essential topic at the school's campus in Barcelona, May 19-22. Prof. Pfeffer is a world-renowned authority on management, leadership and human resources. In 2008, The Wall Street Journal named him one of the 20 most influential business thinkers. He has published more than 10 books, many of them bestsellers, including the recently-published "What Were They Thinking: Unconventional Wisdom About Management."

The program's faculty team is rounded out by IESE professors Fabrizio Ferraro and Antonio Davila, who are experts in management systems, social networks and strategic change.

The Getting Things Done program is designed for senior executives seeking to drive strategic change in their companies. It shows participants how to map the organization's political terrain in order to identify individuals who can help foster a strategy-supportive culture and reveals critical factors in bringing about the successful execution of business objectives. Highly dynamic and interactive, the program - now in its 4th successful edition - covers relevant topics such as:

- Personal characteristics that build influence

- Attracting allies through language

- Influence tactics at work

- Monitoring execution through management systems

- Barriers to action and what to do about them

- Leading strategic change

- Executing strategy in a global environment

Participants also benefit from a 10-week follow-up plan after the program.
